    • 12 hour layover in Dubai

      Dubai Dec 15, 2014 at 5:48 PM

      I have a 12 hour layover between a flight from Kochi, India, to Atlanta in late January. I hold a US passport.

(I haven't seen other people mention this in my research on the subject).

    • UAE Visa Issue

      Dubai Nov 29, 2014 at 6:02 AM

      I'm travelling to UAE with my family (5 people) in January 2015. I plan to stay there for 10 days. I also plan to visit Oman via road in that period.
      I've already booked round trip tickets from Hyderabad (India)- Dubai- Hyderabad via Emirates.
      I have following queries:
      1. What type of UAE/Oman visa should I apply for to visit Oman via road and go back to Dubai (via road/flight) and then board my return flight?
      2. Will I be allowed to enter Dubai when I return from Oman? If allowed, can I go into the city or have to stay inside the airport (prefer going to the city)
      Please propose any alternate scenario possible in which I can travel to Oman

      We are hoping to visit Burj al Arab Skyview Bar in March 2015, either for a cocktail or for afternoon tea and wanting a window seat to watch the sun set, is it best to go for Afternoon Tea or a cocktail.

      Does anyone have any thoughts on this? Again is there any way to improve the chances of getting a window seat?

    • Connections help?!

      Dubai Nov 25, 2014 at 12:02 PM

      Hi all,

      My girlfriend has been in Zimbabwe for the last 3 moths and is due to fly home to the UK very soon. Her connecting flight is in Dubai, and I plan to surprise her in the airport. I've booked to fly to Dubai a few days before for a bit of a holiday, and then I've booked us on the same flight home sat next to each other. (already knew her flight details and she asked me to book her seats)

      My question is, where will I be able to meet her? Will she be going through arrivals as normal? Or will she be transferred to her next flight straight to the gate?
      Her flight is in the same terminal, and her stop over is 7 hours.
      Sorry if stupid question, haven't flown much.

      Any help hugely appreciated!!
      From a hopeless romantic boyfriend!

    • Beach / nice hotel for 20 hour transit

      by MCLF Online Now Nov 6, 2013 at 9:11 AM

      I have a long transit in Abu Dhabi. I arrive at 1AM and my flight leaves the same day at 10PM on route to Sydney. I'd like to stay in a nice hotel where I can relax, use the pool, maybe go to one of the private beaches, maybe venture out to a restaurant. I realise it's not particularly cultural of me but I really just want to relax before the long flight so not too fussed about seeing the sights. I've emailed a few hotels but they all seem intent on charging me for two nights accommodation because I'll be checking in late.

      Can anyone recommend one where I can check out in the afternoon but still use some of the hotel facilities until I have to go back to the airport.

      Thanks so much!

I do NOT want to be mistaken for a prostitute - sorry but I spent an eight hour flight from London next to an appalling man who spent the entire flight extolling the various virtues of various high end Abu Dhabi hotels for their amazing selection of Russian girls to a poor UK Abu Dhabi student .. Kind of put me right off Abu Dhabi and I now worry about staying there.. is it safe?
